But then Dornan, her only real friend, tracks her down. He needs her to find his runaway fiancée. Aud feel obliged to help--and finds herself up against both a sociopath so artful that the law can't touch him, and her own demons.
Aud wins--she always wins--but the price is a new understanding of herself, a return to Atlanta, and the renunciation of her wilderness redoubt.
Simply gorgeous--a powerful character study in the rough domain of mystery and adventure. It made me glad to read it.

A brilliant and multifaceted novel. Tautly plotted and pulsating with energy, this is a novel that won't let go, alternately searing and shocking, soaring with lyrical prose that's close to poetry in places. Compelling. Stunning.
Darkly revealing, furiously entertaining.
Brutal and beautifully wrought.
